    Hello all, not sure if we are in the right spot to reach out, but yesterday a trucker was Northbound on US 95 coming out of the harbor tunnel in Baltimore and very likely saved my wife, and two daughter's 12 and 9, from a perilous situation. She was involved in a rear end accident on a blind corner. The car in front of her was cut off by an idiot merging from the number 2 lane all the way across to try and make an exit, guy in front of her braked so hard she was unable to stop (undamaged car that caused the accident split the scene). Airbags deployed, and they were stuck in the number 4 (of 5) lanes with the car in automatic shutdown mode. Trucks and cars were screaming and screeching around them for a few minutes while she was in a panicked call to 911. A trucker with a car carrier full of brand new Jaguars apparently realized her predicament and came up behind her on the blind corner and stuck his rig right behind her to protect them. If anyone knows who he was, or heard the event on the radio and heard his handle, we are just trying to reach out and pass along a huge THANK YOU!!! A serious tragedy was avoided, as the numerous tire marks left all around my wife's car can attest to. And to all you truckers out there helping us all stay safe Thank You so much!
